The wedding dress worn by the Duchess of Cambridge brought in a whopping $15 million for Buckingham Palace, according to the Telegraph.
More than 600,000 people stopped by to see the gown during the 10 weeks it was on display in the palace, crushing the previous record of 420,000 visitors set back in 1994.
According to the Telegraph:
Palace officials have not yet released a figure for the amount of money raised by the summer opening, which ended on Monday, but it would equate to £10.5m worth of sales at the full ticket price of £17.50. Millions more are likely to have been spent in official Palace gift shops.
Most of the money raised will go to the Royal Collection, which maintains the thousands of paintings and other treasures at the Royal palaces, but a slice of the money will go to charity, in accordance with the wishes of the Duchess.
UPDATE: An earlier version of this article said the dress belong to Kate Middleton. It’s been corrected.
